SLIGHTLY FUNKY, RED FRUITS, ON TREND
Try this if you enjoy light modern ‘natural’ wine
This wine is unlike any other wine you will taste this year.
Volcanic and granite soil. Natural wine, 100% Pais, indigenous Chilean variety, a little funky, smokey with mulberry fruits and spice. This wine is bang on trend. Organic viticulture, old bush vines unirrigated, impossible to work with tractors thus all the work is manually done or with horses. The delicate underbrush aromas of Itatas wild grass, red fruits and a little bit of cassis are aromas and flavours that characterise this wine. A fresh wine, delicate, marked by fine grain tannins that give a very unique structure and create a long lingering ending with a distinctive mineral character due to the volcanic soils where the old vines thrive.
The old Itata Hills is a fantastic place. The terroir potential for making wines here with special character, it’s great. The way they work is to bring that sense of a place into the bottle. In the Itata Hills the beautiful heritage, the historic old vineyards over volcanic or over granitic soils has a lot to say and tell. They want to communicate that message. In order to achieve that they are working back into the organic viticulture (which here is been the tradition), and with Natural winemaking. They feel like they don’t need to fix nature but rather enhance her capabilities, to enhance her potential. They want wines full of life, vibrancy, tension, freshness and joy.
